1. Why'd you delete 9/10 of my post?<quoted text>
And you are not an aviator but you think you know more about aviation than I do!!!
And I did not say everyone receiving socialized medicine is on welfare. Only those who do not pay taxes are on welfare!!!
As for me, I payed in advance for my health care. In just four years my my copay for my medications have gone from $4 per med. per month to $17. In otherwise I pay $1,020 per year when I used to pay only $240. Has inflation gone up 425% in just four years? Now, how much are welfare people paying for their meds? Remember, I payed in advance for my medical care!!!
Oh and that is just my meds and not my doctor/hospital copays!!!
What a bigot you are!!!
2. Those 55 million are not all welfare recipients. Most are workers who could not afford huge premiums. I know of people personally in that position but will not bother you with personal anecdotes. I also know of those 55 million and the $1000s of dollars per month premiums that they could not afford to pay. Ever read Consumer Reports or Prevention magazine?;
3. What you now pay in premiums you should not have to pay at all. Neither should any American citizen have to pay ANYTHING for universal health care. But, having said that, you have to. What you are paying, Rogue, is peanuts compared to the average self-employed American or any American having to pay his own protection.
The Insurance industry is making money from people's illnesses and misfortunes. Also, the system for registering is so complicated, it would discourage the stoutest and most courageous applicant. And would you know it, rapacious insurance companies are somehow still involved. Why? And how they spread the lies that in Canada , we have to get gov't approval for procedures. Lie. Huge lie but hey, people like you believe it because you WANT to . Now, I saw in insurance companies whilst in LA advertising their new policy of "no pre-conditions" . Bastards. They fought that to the hilt, were forced to offer it, now boast about their good will and generosity. So much for your big company heroes, Rogue.
What is this bigot thing anyhow? That the best you 've got?
